If you want more performance out of your body then the Feldenkrais Method is for you.
Changing your movement habits and patterns with Feldenkrais can have a huge impact on how you carry and support your body weight, hold your body and maintain posture and it can even improve how you will age!
ViVi Therapy’s Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Workshops will lead you to a place where you become aware of inefficient movement habits. Once you develop this awareness you then have the option to change what you are doing. With the guidance of Roxanne Derskon, individuals can replace old habits with newer more efficient skeletal based motion. Feldenkrais movement education can really improve how people feel, move and age. It is possible to change your body image based on higher functioning and improve self esteem as a result. Wrinkles and crankiness is not what ages us as much as our habits. Trying new things and developing new ways of moving helps break the cycle of habits that age us.
When regular daily movement patterns are inefficient and strained increased muscular tension and joint compression or stiffness begin to be the norm. Often people find they are living with daily physical discomfort and even chronic pain. As individuals we lack the “know how” to change the movement that contributes to the problem. Over time, arthritis, osteoporosis, disc degeneration and need for joint replacements are the result and considered common in our aging population. The higher the demands on the body for repetitive daily movement or inactivity the higher the need for a finer tuned body. The Feldenkrais Method delivers the fine tuning.
We will be holding a series of 3 x 3 hour Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement workshops.
Intro To Head, Neck & Jaw Pain – is the first in the series and will be focusing on the neck & shoulders.
During this workshop we will look at how to avoid common movement habits that contribute to debilitating head, neck & jaw problems.
During this 3 hour workshop you will experience and learn two specific “awareness through movement” lessons that will leave your head, neck and jaw feeling free of tension.
Learn how vision, chewing and posture contribute to muscle tension and compressed joints. Discover the empowering feeling of knowing how you are doing something and being able to change it to serve you better.
Read Roxanne’s blog Post on Text Neck and take this workshop to avoid it.
Education is key here and understanding how the body works and is supported by the skeletal structure is a matter of awareness and putting some new habits into place at home and at work. Join us for the first in an empowering series of 3 Feldenkrais workshops developed by Roxanne Derkson Registered Massage Therapist and Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner.
Avoid the long term effects of text neck now and stay free of neck and shoulder pain for good.
